|Set of "Avenue Q", Lower Ossington Theatre, Toronto|
We then walked over to the popular Ossington strip to Rock Lobster for drinks.
Then we took the few steps down the street to the Lower Ossington Theatre to take in a show of Avenue Q, winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book.
We had front row seats so I snapped the picture above for a souvenir. The musical was hilarious, with stand-out performances from the leads, Cassie Muise and Stephen Amon. Ms. Muise was especially strong and moving, with a powerful vocal delivery and presence. We were pleased to see two Kingston connections in the cast: Kingston native Michael Donnelly was perfect as the comic-relief, gravelly-voiced Trekkie Monster, and Queen's alum Shruti Kothari played the fictional version of child actor "Gary Coleman"
I'll leave you with some lyrics from one of Kate Monster's best songs: "There's a fine, fine line between together and not/And there's a fine, fine line between what you wanted and what you got/ You gotta go after the things you want while you're still in your prime...".
